3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is big spruce, citrus, grass, some caramel, bread. Clear amber orange with white head that dissipates to a ring. Irregular lacing. Strong hop bitterness through and through. Almost harsh. It figures that now that Iím finally getting to rate this Iím not picking up as much on the malty sweetness that usually holds it together from the bitter start to bitter end. I suppose thatís the nature of this game, though -- snapshots in time. Medium body, average carbonation, long bitter finish. Overall: this is one of my go-to favorites, but it probably wouldnít be if this rating was my first time with the beer. I wonder how many other potential favorites I miss because of the circumstances under which we meet for the first time?

Picked up one of these up in Colorado, as it isnít distributed to my locale. About 2 months old when I opened it. Golden yellow appearance with a large head. Aroma is delicious citrus/pine hops. Taste is composed of juicy hop bitterness plus a nice sweet malt. Alcohol is very well hidden. Thereís something a bit more complex and different in here than most other DIPAs Iíve had. Great great beer. If you like DIPAs and you havenít had this, you are missing out.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
355ml bottle at home (bottled on 21.03.2014). Pours copper with a small head (pretty unusual for an IPA, on the other hand the small head can be explained by the 9,6% ABV). Aroma: a lot of herbs and pine tree, with some slight white fruit aromas in the background. Taste: very well balanced and elegant, at the same time bursting with hops (herbs and pine), with some delicate sweet aromas from malt in the background. The alcohol is very well hidden. A very solid and at the same time dangerous double IPA (due to its incredible drinkability).

Impressionou pelos aromas de grapefruit, tangerina e manga adocicados. Colar branco com tons beges, de bela formação e persistência. Muito saborosa, com amargor muito presente mas aveludado. Álcool presente e equilibrado. Excelente.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: grapefruit, tangerine, lime, juniper
Appearance: pale gold, minimal foamy head
Taste: medium bitterness, slight sweetness, slight sourness
Palate: bitter finish, medium body, slick texture, average carbonation
Great hop composition, well-hidden alcohol. The only disadvantage is the high import price... 12 Euro per 650 ml bottle...

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an orangey shade of gold. Well retained orangey head. Taste is luscious and bitter, screams of a new world IPA. Creamy body, stays well on the palate - you dont want to swallow this beer. Perfect.

Very nice IIPA. Tounge numbing, boozy flavor with in your face hops. Purchased in Berlin for ~12Ä at Das Meisterstuck (great restaurant and beer bar!). Pours clear with orange color. Hard to find but delicious beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours gold orange with a medium off white head. Aroma is of citrus pine hops, yeast and sweet caramel notes. Taste same as aroma with citrus, grapefruit notes up front followed by caramel malt, brown sugar, resin and yeast notes. Palate is a full body, mild carbonation, sweet and smooth mouth feel. Finishes with a sweet caramel malt, yeast flavor and some good moderate citrus grapefruit hops bitterness on the end for balance. A very good well made full flavored and tasty.
